It seems that when a half hour show is sponsored, SpongeBob SquarePants is the lucky fellow to win the other half hour.
SpongeBob’s boss decided it would be a good idea to stay open 24 hours a day. SpongeBob is delighted. He works in a restaurant. Does anyone else have nightmares that they are still a waiter? I do.
This show is so damn hard to blog about. It is no use to blog about the plot or the jokes. Except to prove that I am actually watching it. Let me see if I can find some clever insight into what makes this show funny.
Damn, the show is half over! I need to think of something funny, and quick!
The second half also revolves around SpongeBob at work. SpongeBob is playing Cyrano to his boss. Itâ€™s not just the nose that is similar either.
The show is not really teaching us any life lessons, so it is not educational in a street smart sense. Maybe we are supposed to learn that crabs can fall in love with puffer fish. Deep down, everyone is the same inside.
Except that is not true. You see, crabs be different from puffer fish. And not just in a hilarious Sinbad stand-up comedy way either. They could not give each other a liver transplant. Do they even have livers?
There, I made it through SpongeBob SquarePants again without coming to any smart conclusions. At least I am not off my game, if I was never on it.
My lifetime has not been filled with a large amount of time spent on SpongeBob SquarePants. People seem to love the show, but I have never gotten into it. Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, is a very funny fellow. At least it has that going for it.
From what I can gather, this show revolves around a yellow sponge who talks. Bah, I can not play stupid. You have probably seen the show before, and so have I, so let us continue.
In this episode, SpongeBob is asleep and visiting other people’s dreams. Patrick, the starfish fellow, was dreaming of riding one of those 25 cent horses they have at grocery stores. Then he ran out of money. That made me laugh. Come on, give me more moments like that!
Hooray! I asked and SpongeBob SquarePants gave! This seems like the perfect show to be eating a chocolate egg stuffed with a Peep to.
The key to enjoying this show seems to be giving up to its absurdist landscape. This should not be that hard, since it stars a talking sponge at the bottom of ocean who also works at a fast food restaurant.
I did not enjoy the show the first couple of times I saw it. It was not the “it is just for kids” stigma either. You just need to eat yourself some candy and relax. Do not try to hard to watch the show. Just watch it.
Here is a fact. SpongeBob does not get a cold, he gets the suds. You do not want to know what happens when he gets Chlamydia.
It has come about that Patrick is going to be SpongeBob’s doctor. Patrick is an idiot. This will be fun.
Similar to South Park, it is hard to blog live about this show. It just needs to be watched and enjoyed. I still do not think it is a show I would go out of my way to watch or even Tivo, but it has provided me with a few good chuckles.
